Nokia Lumia Holds Developer Competition in Indonesia; No More Updates Beyond WP7.8

Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 were officially launched yesterday in Indonesia. To help get the hype going, Nokia is holding a developer competition for the Windows Phone (WP) 7.5 and 8 platforms in the country, called the Lumia Apps Olympiad.

The Lumia Apps Olympiad promises brand new WP8 handsets, money, and access to the Nokia premium developer program to the winners of each category. The deadline registration is only two days away though, and participants will then need to submit a one-minute video of their apps to Nokia. So far there have been 276 teams that registered for this competition. For more information, you can check here.

One extra detail to emerge is that those who bought WP7 phones will not, it is confirmed, get any updates after WP7.8.
